On tap at Congregation Ale House in Azusa, CA.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that smells much better than it tastes in my opinion.

This beer will take great care of you. With a bitter note mixed with big time flavor, this beer will send you to places you wish planes flew. Under no circumstances should you attempt to try this beer if you are unprepared for the intense hops and aromatic floral flavor you are about to enjoy.

Amber in color. One finger of white head poured into a tulip.

The aroma was all malt. Sweet, sweet malt with a touch of spicey hops. Seemed old.

The taste was a malt bomb with hops that seem angry and bitter. Sweetness is a little cloying on the finish. Booziness is noticeable.

Mouthfeel is prickly and finishes dry.

I could not finish this beer. Double IPAs are my favorite style but this one was a train wreck. I imagine it might be old but you never know. I have no tolerance for brewers who don't date their bottles, I will no longer give them the benefit of the doubt. This beer was a complete mess and I feel robbed.
